This psychological thriller was filled with crazy heart racing moments and edge-of-your-seat suspense! When our main character, Cary, witnesses a car intentionally run over two deer, she grabs the attention of the man driving the car. He begins to stalk her, and when two young girls are killed, her instincts tell her she’s in some major danger.
I really enjoyed Cary’s quirks as a character, it helped to make the plot make a bit more sense. I would have questioned Cary’s actions, but learning her personality, I came to understand why she chose to do the things she did. I did find some areas to be a bit repetitive, but overall I thought this was a solid story! It was a tense one that I needed to get to the end and find out what happened!
I do want to caution readers that there are a few scenes with graphic brutality to animals. This may be a trigger for some readers.
